Mathematica informs health policy debates and addresses decision makers’ information needs through reliable data and analysis. Driven by broad-based public interest in finding ways to improve the quality, efficiency, affordability, equity, and financing of health care, we have contributed to the base of research and data in care delivery and financing, quality measures and health systems change.
